As pioneers We have had to blaze new trails for the succeeding classes to trek. lf, at times we have not succeeded in pulling down mountains, will you please bear in mind that this is our first jour' nalistic effort? If we have at least made some of the rough ways plain for those that will follow us- then We feel that our sincere efforts have been amply rewarded. To him whom the love for Christian Education of youth has inspired to found the first Norbertine School in the East, our beloved Archmere, We de' votedly dedicate the first Year Book in the school's history. The first senior class of Archmerc is hon' ored to offer this volume as a tribute of love and gratitude to the Rt. Rev. Abbot B. H. Pennings, O. Praem., Abbot of St. Norbert Abbey. REV. MICHAEL J.

A good student and a good athlete along with his ability to make friends will keep john's name in the memory of all who knew him. Football proved to be his favorite sport. The spectators at our games will long remember him as a big, powerful and ex' ceptionally fast end. A short summary of his traits would be student, gentleman and athlete parfexcel- lence. The senior class wish him the best of luck in all his future activities. Transferred from West Catholic High School. Football '35, Basketball '35, Baseball '35, Tennis '35, Golf '35, KEYSTONE Secretary. JAMES H. CLEARY 5000 Hazel Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa. Nothing that one could say in praise of Jim could do him justice. As a student, he saw to it that his name stayed on the Honor Roll. As an athlete, he will be remembered as a "hghter." As a friend no student could claim a more loyal one. To him goes the lion's share of credit for the linancial success of this first KEYSTONE. The best of luck to you, Jim.

FERDINAND CONVERY 834 West State Street, Trenton, N. J. It is quite impossible to write in such short space the countless abilities of this lad, Probably the most outstanding characteristics of Ferd is his neatness of appearance and choice of wearing apparel and pipe smoking. He has been a great asset to the senior class. Ferd is indeed a student and a gentleman and will succeed in anything he attempts.

Fitz is a boy of whom Archmere can boast. His dominating personality attracts all those with whom he is associated. His eagerness to study and readif ness to help others are traits by which he long will be remembered. It is our sincere opinion that what- ever Fitz undertakes in future life will vindicate what is here said of him. Football '32, '33, '34, Debating '34, C. S. M. C.

Joe, in his inimitable way, contributed greatly to the success of the class. His consistent congeniality is incomparable. In his graduation, Archmere will lose a good student, a fine athlete and a perfect gentleman. Our good wishes follow you, joe, wherever you may be.

Jack in his quiet manner is a seriousfminded stu- dent. Aside from frequent inability to meet the hours of the senior class, he is held in high esteem by his fellow classmates. In generosity he is excelled by few. This and his many other good qualities make him a likeable fellow. Football '33, '34g Debating '34. JOHN KERNS 1706 Walnut Street, Chester, Pa. jack is the boy who came from St. Robert's and put that extra energy and fight into our teams that carried them on to victory. But jack is not only an athlete, he is one of the very best students of the school. He has personality plus and has created a friendship with every student. He deserves the best life has to offer, and we know that he will take advantage of it.

John, who rates high among our star athletes, is one of the most likeable fellows in the school and has proven himself to be one of Archmere's best students. John is a chap who will never be forgot' ten by upper and lower classmen alike for his good fellowship and willingness to help one in need. These are only a few of the traits, which flourishing persistently in him, have captured the friendship and respect of every student. May the best of luck be yours, john.

Frank came here the first year and soon became known for his quick wit and humor. He is music' ally inclined and plays the piano very well. As for his scholastic attainments he shows a very good record. We as fellow classmates wish Frank the success and happiness that goes with later life.

It is unnecessary to say that Jack is a jovial lad. He has a good head on his shoulders but is not inclined to use it any too often. Even in the most serious situation, jacks personality and good nature usually bring him out on top. Archmere will always be proud to claim him as one of its Hrst graduates.

In the short time that Dick was with us he proved to be the most popular fellow in the school. His athletic ability was supreme. He was the greatest backfield man that this school ever knew and it is our opinion that he can never be replaced. Because he was never too busy to help the little fellows, the underclassmen will long remember him. Words can' not accurately describe the impression Dick leaves on his classmates. His most unfortunate illness cut short his stay at Archmere, but it is hoped that he will soon recover and be able to take his place among the immortals of the gridiron. Transferred from Dickinson High School, jersey City, N. Football Captain '35, Tl-tird Order of St. Norbert, '35. 15 FRANCIS PUFAHL 1305 Maple Street, Wilmington, Del. Frank is undoubtedly the proverbial perfect gene tleman. Although most of the time he is quiet, he often lends a tang of humor to the class. Frank always did more than his share to uphold the athletic tradition of Archmere. Besides being a conservative dresser, he has a pleasing personality and genial manners to go with it. Football '33, '34, '35, Debating '34, Dramatics, '34, '35. JOHN REBMANN 1117 Windsor Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa. A most sincere student and gentleman are the traits by which John is known. His interest in the school was without equal. As an athlete John was among the best. He showed his ability in baseball and basketball and proved to be an important factor in the success of both teams. The fact that he was willing to help out at any time made him a most popular fellow. The class of '35 sincerely hope to see John receive the success due to him. We wish him luck in all his future activities.

An earnest student, a good athlete and a gentle' man. These are the three traits by which Philip is known. He came to us from Wilmington High and made possible many victories in both basketball and baseball. Philip's willingness to help, created friendf ships that will long be remembered and cherished. We wish you the best of luck in any enterprise you attempt, Phil. A Basketball '35g Baseball '35g Debating '35, Choir '35, WILLIAM REILLY Archmere Preparatory School, Claymont, Del. Billie, wherever he goes shall always be rememf bered for his sincere generosity and industriousness. In the face of odds which many others would have found insurmountable, he has finally reached an im' portant step towards his cherished goal. The whole senior class heartily wish him unconined success and happiness in his High Calling. Baseball '33g Basketball '33, '34, 17 GEORGE THEODORE Media, Pa. Last fall George came from Media High School to brush up on certain subjects as a Post Graduate. He is by nature a very quiet fellow. Entering into every activity with enthusiasm, George made him' self popular and well liked among the students of Archmere Football '35, Baseball '35. JOSEPH WALKER 137 South Fairview Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa. 'SA little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men." This certainly must have been Joe's motto. Although he never believed in overtaxing his mental capacity when in earnest he was one of the most alert students in the class. We feel sure that Joe's jovial personality and ready wit will win him a high place in the hearts of his associates and aid him in his life's career.

During his stay at Archmere he made a name for himself in studies and athletics. He is a quick and keen student and in the future this will be a great asset to him. One so richly endowed should attain to great heights in any future endeavor. Football 34g Baseball '35. BRUNO ZALOGA Aguebogue, N. Y. As a gentleman, scholar and athlete Bruno will long be remembered by his classmates. His many acts of kindness to his fellow students earned for him that coveted title of gentleman. In class his hard work acquired enviable marks for him. His prowess as an athlete is undisputed. On the grid' iron, basketball court and baseball diamond he gave his best. It is our sincere wish that in future life this most illustrious son of Archmere will meet with every possible success.

HE CLASS OF '36, the present Fifth Form, is in the real sense of the word, the Charter Class of Archmere, since it will have been the first to complete the original four years of high school course. In the Freshman year there were fifteen of us, now there are over twenty, although of these only ten are left of the first group. Considering its size, much has been accomplished by this body, and a remarkable spirit of cofoperation prevails. After nnally settling down to the realization of the exalted position we held as Juniors, we began to show signs of great activity. We gave the school much good material in football, basketball, and baseball. From our midst came the golf champion and the first two winners of the bowling tournament. Plays, debates, and kindred activities found willing talent among our members. Following the example set by the Hrst Juniors, we ordered our class rings this year and received them in time for Christmas. Plans have been discussed since before Christmas for the first graduation ceref monies to be held at Archmere. Instead of giving a dance the night of graduation to bid goodfbye to the Seniors, it was decided, with the wishes of the graduating class taken into consideration, to hold the Junior Prom soon after Easter and to give the Seniors their last official breakfast at Archmere on Commencement Day. 20 Seated: V.

FOURTH FORM just two years is the classs age Vvlifll whose merits we fill this page, And if we add but one year more 'Twoulcl be called the junior, But if from it a year was taen, The Freshman Class would be its name. So as youafe probably figured out 'Tis the Sophomores we write about. N SEPTEMBER OF 1933, the sixteen members of Archmere's new freshman Class met for the first time. As time passed, they formed many friendships angl became more accustomed to their new surrroundings. Eoothall season came, and these young Archmerians rut six men on the squad. Continuing this line school spirit into haskethall, four of them won places among those representing Archmere for the first time on the court. In the spring six of these Freshmen responded enthusiastically to the call of the diamond. Thus having shown that the "hrawn" of the class more than held its share in the field of sports, we now turn to see what the 'lhrainsv have accomplished. Looking hack over the honor rolls of the whole year, we find that on an average at least three memlwers of this class of '37 have attained honor roll marks every fortnight. Therefore at the conclusion of their Freshman Term these hoys may well I-ride themselves as they look hack on their many achievements. With slight changes this small group came hac': to Archmere the next term to hcgin its Sorhomore Year. This time, however, Archmere was an old acquaintance to them and little time was needed for hzcorning familiar with it once more. Soon the class was organized with Er. Mclieough as Advisor, and oflieers were selected as follows: james Shea, President: David Quinlan, Vicefpresidentg Paul Callahan, Secretary: and Victor DeBerardinis, Treasurer. 21 Seated: I.

White, M. C'Connor. THIRD FORM HE FRESHMAN CLASS, although it is composed of only eighteen members, has become an integral and inseparable part of Arehmere. The class of '38 has eofoperated in every possible way with the upper classmen in any under' taking which they have sponsored. With Fr. Sromovsky as Class Advisor, the Freshmen built up a strong class organif nation which successfully carried out the plans they had made in the early part of the term. The Class was well represented in sports and there were always several Freshmen on the Honor Roll. As a whole the Class is well qualiiied to take its place at Archmere next year and make room for new Freshmen. 90 W. Blest, J. Milligan, G. Harmon, F. Baker, S. O'Brien, E. MacWhite. Absent P Keehan FIRST AND SECOND FORMS HE CLASS OF JUNE, 1939, greets you. Une of the most interesting boys of the class is Eoin MacWhite, son of the Irish Minister to the United States. He is, perhaps, the youngest boy in the school, and though small in stature, shows up as a giant in his interest in General Science and Geography. Now, we come to a. young man, who has "earned his spurs" not only as a good student, where he has excelled in Latin and English, but, also, in the held of honor where sports are played. He is scheduled to do things in a "big way." This boy is Ted Baker. The most robust member of this class hails from Salisbury, Maryland. Because of his sunny disposition, his friends are numerous. He has an alert mind, for it seems that he just glides through his subjects. Guy Harmon, our friend, and jolly good fellow, has been interested in baseball, stamps, and animal life. The lighter moments of our class have been furnished by Jerome Milligan. His original and witty expressions show a keen and observing mind. His excellent records have been an inspiration to the whole class. He is a resident student, and very popular with his roommates. He is above the average in Latin and Arithmetic. Bill Blest, probably the tallest member of the class, is endowed with a great ability to make friends. His interest in geography, languages, and baseball is remark- able. We believe that with a small amount of effort, he will lead his class in the coming year. A stalwart young man is Stanton C'Brien, who comes from the Bayard School in Wilniiiigtciii. This young man has always been active in Latin. His hobby is art. He is popular with both the students and the faculty. Paul Keehan, it was who wrote all these nice things about his classmates. VVe regret that because of a short illness he was not here when the class pictures were taken. With his Winsome smile, natural ability and industry, Paul is one of the most promising students in the lower school. 01 ORGANIZATIONS 1 x I u KEYSTCNE STAFF Front Row: W.

This cluh is not only one of pleasure hut also one of scholastic benefits, affording one' half credit to those memhers complying with its specincations, The most important purpose of the groups activities is to develop accuracy and facility in speech, To further this end the formal dehatc is employed in which all the memhers engage. Thus far the activities have been confined to competitive dehates within the groupg however, it is anticipated that the cluh will engage in the near future in inter' scholastic forensic contests.

NORBERT was founded in the year 1124 by St. Norhert. It is therefore one hundred years older than those renowned orders of St. Dominic and St. Francis. Its purpose is hest explained by quoting Cardinal Gasquet, noted Benedictine historian. He wrote: "It is worth remarking that the Canons of Premontre were the first to conceive the idea afterwards so largely developed hy the mendicants of the thirteenth century of uniting to them by formal aggregation laymen and women in what was known as the Third Order. These assof ciate brethren though not hound hy the strict obligation of the religious life, still, while engaged in their ordinary secular life, followed a mitigated service somewhat akin to that of the Canons themselves." A branch of the Third Crder was established at Archmere on the feast of its founder, June 6, 1933, on which day a reception for the new members of this Order was held in the school chapel. Father M. A. Steinmetz, O. Pracm., was its first spiritual director. After his departure, Father McKeough succeeded him. On December S, 1934, a second reception and profession was held and the membership increased from ten to twentyftwo. Sealed: E. Churchman, I. Healy, Circator: R.

Under the able direction of Mr. Gallagher for the first two years, and that of Fr. Sromovsky since last September, the choir has developed into an organization worthy of the school which it represents. The choir sang at the High Mass in honor of the Holy Ghost, celebrated on the opening of school, the Mass on December the eighth, the patronal feast of the Immacuf late Conception, and the Mass on june the sixth in celebration of the feast of St. Norbert. Cn October 12, 1932, the choir took part in the Solemn Dedication of Archmere. On this occasion it was assisted by john Thoms, Jr., concert organist and musical director of the Philadelphia Savoy Company. On the feast of Corpus Christi, the choir was heard over the school grounds by means of an amplifying system. The hymns sung from the chapel were heard throughout the procession and at the three altars where Bencdiction of the Most Blessed Sacrament was given. Father Sromovsky, Director. Mr. F. X.

Under the ahle direction, first of Mr. Fleck and later of Mr. Gallagher, it has contributed no small portion to the entertainment program of the school. Through the splendid cofoperation of everyone involved, the Society presented during its first year several onefact plays, including "The Rising of the Moon" by Lady Gregory, and "The Valiant" by Holworthy Hall and Robert Middlemas. The next year witnessed the Christmas play "VVhy the Chimes Rang," and the American comedy in three acts "The ShowfOff" hy George Kelly. The last year the Society presented very appropriately during Holy Week "Scenes from the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ" adapted and directed hy Mr. Gallagher. 31 Mrs, Houser, Mrs. E.

The Mothers' Guild, an organization composed of the mothers of Arch' mere students, was organized shortly after the opening of the school. It is steadily increasing as time goes on and is a great henelit to all concerned at Archmere. Its primary purpose is to hetter the school in every way that it is ahle. During its initial year the Guild donated a picture of the Immaculate Conception which now adorns the chapel. It also gave a complete set of vestments and many other smaller gifts for the chapel. The next year the chapel received from the same generous hody a heautiful set of candlesticksg live dozen card tahles and twelve dozen chairs were donated to the school.

Its system is in accordance with the best American Catholic tradif tions. The faculty is composed of men who have dedicated their lives to the welfare of youth. These men have been trained in the educational traditions of the Church and in modern pedagogical methods. To them education means co-operation in human development which includes the physical, moral and mental growth of the boy. They believe that this process is going on outside of the classroom as well as in it. Therefore, the acquisition of right habits of conduct, of courtesy, manliness and solid piety is considered as important as the accumulation of knowledge. By means of environment, example, direction, and opportunities for self- expression, Archmere helps boys to make men of themselves. Archmere is located on the Philadelphia Pike, seven miles north of Wilmington, twentyfone miles south of Philadelphia. It can be reached by motorbus, street-car or railroad from Philadelphia or Wilmington. Situated in a spot rich in historical lore, with territorial associations reach' ing back to the early Indians and to Swedish, Dutch and English colon' ists, the site is an ideal one for a boys' school. The property consists of thirty acres overlooking the Delaware River in the rear and facing the Philadelphia Pike with a walled front' age of 1000 feet broken only by the two iron gates which open on the driveway leading to the main building. Beautiful trees and shrubbery surround the imposing structure which houses the first Norbertine school in the East. The main building was originally built as a home for Mr. John J. Raskob. It is a spacious structure of marble and stone con- taining small dormitories, sleeping porches, an inhrmary, recreation rooms, bowling alleys, classrooms and study halls. One of the most remarkable features of the building is the patio, with its disappearing 2025 square feet of glass skylight. This building also contains the library, splendidly designed and equipped, excellently lighted, with 280 linear feet of shelving. In it also is the school chapel, notable for its great WeltefMignon pipe organ. The building is heated from a central heating plant, each room having thermostatic control. 33 J In the building, originally designed as a garage, there are a well- equipped laboratory and shops. There is a stately dignity and solidity about Archmere which hare monizes well with the scholastic atmosphere which the school maintains. Its chief architectural beauty is its classic simplicity. The sturdy solidity of the spacious stone and marble building, its window set in bronze, and its grilled ironwork are fitted for the best in modern education establishments, so that it can be justly termed architecf turally and aesthetically perfect. In addition to the athletics necessary to provide for the training of the students in the usual preparatoryfschool sports, Archmere maintains a private ninefhole golf course. Archmere, as a Premonstratension abbey school, is in direct historic succession with a long line of European schools that stretches back be' yond the "Thirteenth, Greatest of Centuries." Its faculty is under the supervision of the Order of Canons Regular of Premontre. The Order was founded at Premontre, France, by St. Norbert in 1120 and from its inception, its members, true to its motto - "Prepared for All Good Work" - have been virtually interested in the basic task of preparing Catholic youth for Catholic manhood. The Premonstratensians are canons, that is to say, priests living a canonical life. This is based on a thoroughly monastic training in which love of prayer and study becomes almost second nature. It is only after this course of training has been completed that the Norbentine Canon begins his career as pastor or teacher, competently trained to realize and contribute to the spiritual needs of society. The order made its first permanent foundation in America at St. Norbert Abbey, West De Pere, Wisconsin, where the Fathers conduct St. Norbert College. This college is fully accredited to the University of Wisconsin and is a member of the National Catholic Education Associaf tion. A substantial proportion of its alumni are recognized leaders of the professional and commercial classes in northeastern Wisconsin. It is from St. Norbert Abbey that the Fathers of the Immaculate Conception Priory have come to Delaware to carry on at Archmere the educational work begun there. 34 A'l'i-ILETICS l 'Top Row Standing: P.

FOOTBALL URING the lirst two years Archmere met with only a small measure of success in football due to the lack of experience and material. Student body and faculty looked forward to the season of 1934, hoping to see Archmere in the winning column. An increased enrollment gave the school the material necessary to bring about a bigger and better team. The first day of practice found Mr. Connell in position as head coach, also many new candidates along with the veterans of the first two years. After weeks of practice the season was officially opened. This year proved to be the most successful in Archmere's history. Our record was two ties, one loss, and five wins. This was indeed an achievement for a little school and a record of which to be proud. At the annual football banquet Dick O'Reilly, the brilliant quarterback of the 1934 team, was elected honorary captain. The following members of the team were presented with letters for their loyalty and service: Captain Dick O'Reilly, jim Cleary, Bruno Zaloga, George Theodore, John Alderdice, Joe Walker, Russell Wheeler, Joe Kane, jim Conway, Frank Pufahl, Jack Kerns, joe Healy, Joseph Mikesell, Tom Fitz' simmons, jack Keaveny, John Manning, and our two capable managers-Tom Sullivan and Vincent Maguire.

BASKETBALL ASKETBALL proved to be one of the most successful sports at Archmere in the Hrst two years. As in football it was hoped that the 1934 team would be better than those before it. The time arrived and Mr. Connell issued a call for candidates. The turnout proved gratifying and practice was soon under way. The Hrst game found Archmere on the short end of a 3Of26 score: the victor being St. Josephs Prep of Philadelphia. As the season progressed victories were our's. Two games were won from Rehobeth. This was followed by a defeat at the hands of our rival, St. Roberts Claymont, Tower Hill, and Malvern Prep handed us trouncings one after the other. Archmere reversed the previous defeat of St. Robert's by a 25f17 score. This proved to be an incentive to the team which resulted in victories over Friends, Newman Prep, Tower Hill, and Church Farm School. Malvern Prep again defeated us for the second' time of the year. Entering the Brown Prep Tournament, Archmere created an upset, according to the newspapers, by defeating Pierce School. In the finals we lost to Triangle A. C. This gave us the runnerfup position in the tournament and the trophy that goes with it. Thus the basketball season was oflicially closed and the following received the school monogram: Bruno Zaloga, john Manning, john Alderdice, Jack Kerns, Philip Reed, John Rebmann, Joe McSweeney, Jim Cleary, Bill Reilly and our eflicient managers, Jack Lawler and Ferd Convery, jr.

This popular pastime resulted in keen rivalry among the boys. Teams were organized and prizes were awarded to the winning teams. Last year the interest increased when it was announced that the donor of the golf trophy, Mr. Albert A. Teeter, presented the school with similar trophies for howling. The annual tournament was won hy Neal McLaughlin with a score of 448 for three games. The runnerfup was Jack Feldman who had a score of 397. Third place went to Russell Wheeler whose score was 388. Trophies were awarded to these hoys hut they do not hecome theirs until they have won them two years in succession. We offer our congratulations to these winners and wish them success in future competition. From the results shown in this tournament it looks as though Archmere will he able to handle outside competition successfully. 38 GOLF O the players of golf, Archmere offers a small hut difficult 9fhole course. In the past year golf received many new players. These future champions of this world famous sport were on the links every day practicing and improving their game. The interest in golf was stimulated to even a higher degree by the announcement that a trophy to he known as the "Albert J. Teeter Golf Trophy" would be awarded to the winner. Every student who could even play a fair game of golf was out to win this handsome prize. Among the contestants was Billy Hanley, who by his skillful playing won the first tournament and temporary possession of the trophy. Would he he ahle against keener competition to win the following year? He did win the tournament the next year and also permanent possession of the trophy. To this future champion we offer our conf gratulations and in the years to come hope to see him in the front ranks of the game. 39 G. Theodore, B. Meyer, L. O'Connor, W. Haley, I. O'Connell, N. Rongione, Gene Rose, Instructor. BOXING N 1935 boxing was added to the list of athletic activities at Archmere. Many Students took advantage of the opportunity to increase their knowledge of self' defense. After many weeks of training under the guidance of the instructor the boys were ready for their first match. These bouts were held in the patio and proved to be interesting to the contestants and spectators alike. The year 1934 brought an increased enthusiasm in this line of sport. With a knowledge of the previous year they entered the work with a desire to perfect them' selves to even a higher dgree. Quite a few of these boys have promise of greater things in this field of endeavor. It is hoped that they will be the nucleus for a representative team of the school. We look to see this team in action next fall and sincerely hope that they will keep the Green and White in the front ranks of interscholastic boxing. 40 Top Row: Fr. McDonnell, 1. Healy, P. Reed, Kelly, Manager, B. Meyers, B. Zaloga, T. Donnelly, Connell, Coach. Bottom Row: I. Alderdice, I. Cleary, I. Conway, R. Wheeler, J. Kane, T. Davis. BASEBALL HE BASEBALL TEAMS representing the school in the past two years, have made out remarkably well. This year there were many new aspirants to the team. The majority of these boys have more than average ability. It is hoped that this season will provide a successful team. The schedule for this year has many new opponents and victory over them is our aim. Among the players there are: three pitchers, two catchers, a well rounded out inheld and an exceptionally fast and accurate outfield. They have the ability for a winning team and the rest lies in their hands. Due to the early publication of this, our first annual, it is impossible to give inforf mation in a more detailed form as to the outcome of this, which we hope will be our most successful season.

The Rev. J. A. Van Heertum, O. Praem., pastor of St. Willebrord's Church, Chicago, gave a resume of the history of the Premonstratensian Order. "Less than forty years ago," he said, "a band of seven missionaries led by our Rt. Rev. Abbot Pennings, who is now head of the order in the United States, settled in the little town of De Pere, Wisconsin, and established a school there on the same spot where the Jesuit Missionaries had settled in the 17th century. After 30 years' teaching there, we now have more than a hundred of our former students as priests in our ranks, and in those of our secular clergy, and St. Norbert's College at De Pere ranks among the best in the country."
